More info from the Holocene website:
Fresh out of Portland comes a new idea in the national sensibility that spawned Flash Mobbing: a sense of the quirky, unconventional and downright unexpected as a revolution. In this case, it's the Penny Jam revolution. Here's the skinny: take the best Portland bands and have them play shows at local businesses and unconventional locales all over the city. Then, give them to the people via a weekly podcast. You've got Magic Johnson at Dollar Scholar and Dirty Mittens at Old Portland Hardware, just to name a few.

We're playing the first ten episodes, and then hosting a live showcase of Penny Jammers: Magic Johnson, the buzzworthy bilingual duo transplanted from LA, generating their sensualist, gritty punk rock; Ascetic Junkies, the contemplative indie folk/bluegrass outfit with a name (and attitude) taken from Jack Kerouac; and of course Eric John Kaiser, the songbird who moved all the way to Portland from his hometown of Paris just to make you swoon.
